Charleston County detectives searching for convenience store robber


Charleston County detectives are searching for a man who robbed a convenience store in Ravenel.

On Tuesday morning, deputies responded to the Kangaroo Express on 4315 Savannah Highway for a strong armed robbery.

The victim said it all started when a man wearing all black came into the store and asked for a "Garcia Vega Cigar."

Authorities say when the suspect handed the cashier a $1 bill to pay for the cigar, the suspect pushed the victim back, reached across the counter and grabbed money from the drawer.

The suspect then left the business heading towards Highway 162.

Deputies describe the suspect as a black male in his early 20s, wearing all black with a black ball cap.

Authorities released three surveillance pictures of the suspect on Wednesday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (843) 554-1111 or the Charleston County Consolidated Dispatch Center at (843) 743-7200.
